Underwater attractions

The average depth is 12m. On the spot are beautiful rock formations. Walls are decorated with a complex of few caves. This place isn’t characterized by a rich marine flora and fauna. While diving, it is possible to find little species of sea animals, mainly single fish. The cave creates a long corridor, which depth until the end isn’t known. In this cave J. Meynie made the deepest descent in 2005, he went down to 172 meters. Until today his record wasn’t beaten. Water in this place is clear and transparent; however due to large depths it is worthwhile to bring flashlights.
